This Virgo New Moon is so juicy and alive that I've barely been able to sit still and write to you on this Venus day. Last night we circled up in my temple living room in honor of this lunar cycle and sipped on tonics that were crafted in honor of the month to come. I always put together these tonics through a process of intuition. Garnet spoke loud and clear to me.
Garnet medicine is juicy, connecting us with the root chakra and in turn assisting one in their journey of manifestation. As garnet nourishes the blood, garnet goes to the liver, heart and kidney, helping one to celebrate the joy of being alive and embracing the passion of life. We are so blessed in these Appalachian mountains as we have garnet that is over 450 million years old here.
The Virgo New Moon was exact this morning at 6:37 am at 6°46 Virgo. This New Moon is the 2nd of a series of three Super New Moons and the closest one to Earth in 2019. We have a powerful Virgo stellium with this New Moon that includes the Ascendant of the chart, the path of fortune, Mercury, Juno, Moon, Sun, Mars and Venus. Virgo is the healer, the humble servant, the hermit and one of mutable Earth that knows how to move and shift anything around to make manifest. Virgo teaches how to digest our lives, in turn showing us absolutely every single detail that impedes our ability to digest or let go.
I love the archetype of Virgo as the Great Celestial Mother, a goddess who carries vision and fertility. This particular New Moon deepens the theme of the divine lovers that began with the Leo lunation at the end of July. A powerful earth trine assisting you in anchoring seeds of intentions so that they may take root and become manifest. With the tightest conjunction in this chart being Mars, that which you set into motion has the ability to truly move forward.
The beauty of the Earth trine is that the Capricorn energy wishes for you to claim that which is most meaningful, to preserve the precious, while Uranus in Taurus is rippling in the innovative genius solutions in this time of new potentials and paradigms.
Ultimately this New Moon is a call to the practice of embodiment. We are going to explore this theme deeply tomorrow night at West Asheville Yoga in Accessing the Key of Life. There are a couple of special meditations we will experience together, in addition to going deep into the concept of Divine Union within and the sacred symbol of the ankh. All levels and all abilities are welcome, and I would love to gather with you.
